***Forum Week event***

(Refresher in preparation for Round 3)

"How do I ________ with Logos?"
"What do other users think of ________ resource?"
"I wonder if anybody else would like _________ resource in Logos' format."

No doubt you've had many thoughts like these. But the odds are incredibly high that someone else has already asked (or answered) your question, right here in the forums.

Hide 'n' Seek

Just a heads-up to make sure everyone has a chance to understand how this works: We'll be doing a few Hide 'n' Seek questions throughout the week to give new users a glimpse of what kind of info is available in the forums and to test everyone else's Forum-fu (see Google-fu).

Things to note:

  • Each question already has an answer somewhere in the forums. The first person to link to that answer (not to post a new answer themselves) will win. Only answers that were already in the forums can be used.
  • The prize is $30 credit at Logos.com
  • There are three levels of questions corresponding to three levels of users. Answer the appropriate question (based on your number of cumulative posts).
  • If you're the person who supplied the original answer, you're not eligible to win that particular round. (e.g., If the question were, "Does Bob use a Mac or a PC primarily?" The winning post would be the first one that links to http://community.logos.com/forums/p/33729/255130.aspx#255130, but Bob couldn't be the person to post it.)
  • ADDITION: If you've already won a prize in a previous round of hide 'n' seek, you cannot win again.
  • ADDITION: Please included your search query/terms in your answer so others can see how you found what you did. (e.g., I found the following by searching Google: Bob uses Apple site:community.logos.com)

TIP: The best way to search the forums effectively is to use the following search syntax from Google: [search query] site:community.logos.com
(e.g., Bob uses Apple site:community.logos.com)

Not quite my first!  I think my initial search was something like "land allocation tribes hard copy" - you know hyper-literal!!  However, I remember seeing the post not long ago so I figured I'd have a go with 'tribes.'  Came off quite well.

Does that mean I won!?

Actually, Dave's answer is not the correct one....find the correct answer given by someone who can give the official definition.

I was at first, but I think you mentioned that earlier this week, too. I'll check with David Ladiges to see if we can get that fixed.

If someone were to look at this answer and the one that Praiser linked to above, how would they know which one is right?

Stephen Smith:
given by someone who can give the official definition.

Note: also include search query in final answer.

How would my response using the wiki be "correct answer given by someone who can give the official definition"?  I would think it would require a posting by an employee of Logos.  The wiki is built by the users and as can be seen by this post       http://community.logos.com/forums/p/22457/176697.aspx#176697         the wiki is not always exactly correct.

 

That and I can't link to my own posting Tongue Tied

You're right...and have linked to the right answer. But to help others learn how to find things more easily in the forums, how did you search to find this answer?

Once I knew it had to be an employee I did a search using last names that I have known to post on the forums giving answers, starting at the top of Logos (after searching Pritchett)  then tried the always helpful MelissaBig Smile
